Default St. John's wort

I have a specific question on this herb. I was wondering if it had any dangerous interactions with any other herbs/vitamins (natural stuff). I'm aware of the conventional drug interactions that are listed, but wanted to be sure.

Welcome to Psych Central! A pharmacist might be able to help if you say what other herbs you are thinking about. I'm not sure, but maybe someone else here will know.

Like Travellinglady mentioned checking in the the pharmacist would be a wise thing to do. Just because something is herbal/natural doesn't mean there wont be a reaction or behavioural change. I found that out the hard way with St John's Wort. It doesn't play nicely with other meds for me.

We tend to forget to most of our medicines have already been synthesized from the natural world and made into the common medicines we have today.
